OUR SOUND and SERVICES

WHO ARE THE TROPICS?

The TROPICS feature Shoreline Music Teacher GREG BOEHME (Bay-me) on Saxophone, Flute, Guitar, Keyboard and Vocals. Greg taught MUSIC at Shorecrest High School and was judged one of "Seattle's Ten Best Artists". In recent years he has combined TROPICS Gigs with sailing adventures logging 20,000 "blue-water" miles in the Pacific.

Powerhouse Vocalist EMILY MCINTOSH is a former "Miss Kirkland" and graduate, Cum Laude, of Seattle's prestigious Cornish College of the Arts. An accomplished interpreter of Soul, R&B, Classic Rock, Pop and Jazz, Emily is a highly regarded vocal teacher whose Ad and Jingle Work is heard "on-air" and online around the world. She can also be heard on Nintendo Wii's "Super Smash Brother's Brawl" hit video game.

Virtuoso Guitarist CHAD QUIST attended the Berklee College of Music and has opened for Ray Charles, Tower Of Power and Diana Ross. He has a long association with "Big Brother and the Holding Company" (of Janis Joplin fame) and Glenn Yarbrough which brought him to Europe, China and Mexico.

Greg and Crew exceeded all our expectations for our wedding this summer. They learned a few song requests for us, but their set list had plenty to pick from already. They played our ceremony and reception and easily adapted to match the tone of the moment. Easy to get a hold of and all around pleasant people. My only regret is not booking them longer into the night!
